Building Science Capital at Kings Ash
At Kings Ash we are dedicated to building our pupils’ science capital. A simple way to imagine it is like a holdall which collects and carries all the science-related experiences that you have. These include all the things you have learned about science; the different types of science related activities that you have done (such as watching science TV programmes or visiting science museums/ centres); all the people that you know who use and talk about science and whether science is something that you enjoy and feel confident doing, or not.
The more of these science related influences and experiences that you gather and connect with throughout your life, the more likely you are to feel at home with science and see it as something that is useful and important, both in your life and for society.
